Jodie Foster and Scott Baio "Bugsy Malone" LP 1976 Signed Autograph
Original Soundtrack-"Bugsy Malone"(RSO 3501)-LP. This soundtrack LP features the 1976-Movie-"Bugsy Malone". The movie stars Jodie Foster and Scott Baio and they are featured on the front and back covers in original scenes.After her film debut in Disney's Napoleon and Samantha (1972), Foster was much in demand, though she was usually cast in "oddball" child roles by virtue of her un-starlike facial features. She was cast in the Tatum O'Neal part in the 1974 TV series based on the film Paper Moon — perhaps the last time she would ever be required to pattern her performance after someone else's. In 1975, Foster was cast in her most controversial role to date, as preteen prostitute Iris in Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver. Both the director and the on-set supervisors made certain that she would not be psychologically damaged by the sleaziness of her character's surroundings and lifestyle; alas, the film apparently did irreparable damage to the psyche of at least one of its viewers. In 1981, John Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate President Reagan, and when captured, insisted he'd done it to impress Foster — a re-creation of a similar incident in Taxi Driver. The resultant negative publicity made Foster (who'd been previously stalked by Hinckley) extremely sensitive to the excesses of the media; through absolutely no fault of her own, she'd become the quarry of every tabloid and "investigative journalist" in the world. Thereafter, she would stop an interview cold whenever the subject of Hinckley was mentioned, and even ceased answering fan mail or giving out autographs. This (justifiable) shunning of "the public" had little if any effect on Foster's professional life; after graduating magna cum laude from Yale University (later she would also receive an honorary Doctorate), the actress appeared in a handful of "small" films of little commercial value just to recharge her acting batteries, and then came back stronger than ever with her Oscar-winning performance in The Accused (1988), in which she played a rape victim seeking justice. Foster followed up this triumph with another Oscar for her work as FBI investigator Clarice Starling (a role turned down by several prominent actresses) in the 1991 chiller The Silence of the Lambs.
Not completely satisfied professionally, Foster went into directing with a worthwhile drama about (perhaps significantly) the tribulations of a child genius, Little Man Tate (1991) — a logical extension, according to some movie insiders, of Foster's tendency to wield a great deal of authority on the set. Foster has in recent years managed to balance the artistic integrity of her award-winning work with the more commercial considerations of such films as Maverick (1994). She made her debut as producer in 1994 with the acclaimed Nell, in which she also gave a stunning Oscar-nominated performance as a backwoods wild child brought into the modern world.The LP has been autographed on the front cover by Jodie Foster in red and Scott Baio in black......CONDITION OF VINYL,COVER AND AUTOGRAPHS IS MINT MINUS.................
